Heidi Montag Pratt
yesterday was rushed to a hospital in Costa Rica where she and her husband,
, are shooting the bug-eating, C-List celeb reality TV fodder,
I'm a Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here
Spencer reportedly accompanied her in the ambulance. The news comes via a tweet from Heidi's sis, Stephanie, who blames Heidi's unknown illness on hardships she has had to endure on the show: "[Heidi was] rushed to the hospital and has an IV in her arm after being locked in a dark room for 3 days w no food or water. Pls pray she will be ok."
We wish Heidi a swift recovery . . . if she's really sick: Last week, she and Spencer incurred much divine wrath for faking an early departure from the show.
Thus their punishment: NBC exec Paul Telegdy last week said Speidi was "insincere, lazy, entitled" and said they would have to suffer in isolation before their fate would be decided on today's episode.
Will the show go on? Oh, let's hope.
